The tactician admitted that he wanted to sign the Amakhosi player while he was still in the PSL with the Brazilians
Former Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has revealed that he is considering re-signing Zimbabwean striker Khama Billiat for Masandawana.
The attacking midfielder was part of the Sundowns team that won the Caf Champions League in 2016, but two years later he joined Kaizer Chiefs and ended a five-year deal with Masandawana under Mosimane’s leadership.
Why Mosimane wanted Billiat
“When I was still at Sundowns, I wanted Khama, but you can not have a player who belongs to another team and who has been contracted to another team,” Mosimane told Power Sport. DiskTimes.
“But I really wanted him back because I know what he did for the team. I thought he should come back, but he was happy at Kaizer Chiefs and he was happy at Kaizer Chiefs and we have to respect that too.”
The midfielder has remained at Amakhosi ever since, making 84 appearances and scoring 16 goals.
He was part of the Chiefs group that fell to the Red Devils in the final of the Caf Champions League last week, when he arrived as a substitute in the second half, but the South Africans could not help with 3-0 not to lose.
Goals from Mohamed Sherif, Mohamed Magdi Afsha and Amr El Solia saw the Egyptian giants win their tenth title against their South African opponents, who had to play the match with ten men after the dismissal of Happy Mashiane in the 45th minute.
Meanwhile, the 56-year-old Mosimane has declared that his Egyptian Premier League club will score a player in South Africa.
However, he denied that Thembinkosi Lorch and Gaston Sirino were his targets, and also rejected suggestions that a player from his former club was on his way.
“There is a player who will come from South Africa,” Mosimane told SAFM, as quoted by iDiski Times.
“It’s not Lorch or Sirino, but the player will come. He’s not from my former team [Mamelodi Sundowns] because I do not want to touch those players because they take me to court.
“I would like a South African player to come here, but I do not want to upset feathers. I want to do it the right way. You know what happened to Sirino.
“They said I was pulling out my former team, even though Ahly wanted him before I came here.”
